Herbal Steam Inhalation: Natural Home Remedy for Nasal Congestion

Edit Posted by with No comments
My daughter, Miel has colds and cough (due to postnasal drip) again last week. So, 3 days ago we tried to make a homemade remedy to ease stuffy nose or nasal congestion. It is a tip we had from our good neighbor. 

Oregano and Vicks Vaprub

Good thing we have a lot of Oregano plants in our front and backyard so we make use of it and picked a handful of leaves. We washed the Oregano leaves and crushed it, then we add boiling water and Vicks Vaporub. After we mixed them all, we let my daughter breathe in the steam for a while.

After the Herbal Steam Inhalation with Oregano and Vicks Vaporub Steam, Miel still has cough and colds but the day after, she doesn't cough that much and today, she's okay and don't have cough and colds anymore. I think this herbal steam inhalation is really effective to ease stuffy nose and I guess for coughs too! And all we need are these 3 things: Oregano leaves, Boiling Water and Vicks Vaporub...

But, if you don't have Oregano, you can also try Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Thyme, Sage and Ginger (I haven't tried it though but if I'll have, I'll surely try it).

This is so easy and an effective home remedy, we were really surprised at how effective it was for us. I hope it can help others too that's why I blogged about this. :)

What worked for us might not worked for everyone, so if you're child is not feeling better, you can try to consult her/his Pediatrician to check her/him thoroughly... And by the way, when doing the Herbal Steam Inhalation, let your child stay still and be careful not to let your child play around because she/he might get hurt by the boiling/hot water.
